Fontaine Saint-Michel Tours

Fontaine Saint-Michel
Fontaine Saint-Michel was sculpted by Gabriel Davioud in 1860 and gives its name to the square where it’s located, Place Saint-Michel. The monumental fountain, located between boulevard Saint-Michel and Place Saint-Andres-des-Arts was commissioned by Baron Georges-Eugene Haussmann as part of Napoleon III’s plans to bring more light and air to the city of Paris.

The fountain depicts the archangel Michael vanquishing Satan, a controversial political symbol at the time hinting at Napoleon vanquishing the revolutionary fervor of the neighborhood. Unlike many of Paris’s fountains, Fontaine Saint-Michel was made from various colors of materials, including red and green marble, blue and yellow stone, and bronze. Place Saint-Michel is a popular meeting spot among both the city’s youth and foreign visitors.

Practical Info

Fontaine Saint-Michel is located in the Latin Quarter near the metro stop Saint-Michel.
Address: Place Saint-Michel, Paris, France

This circuit is unique because my way of touring the city is unique and the fact that we have a fun time after the tour. Visiting Paris by bike is very attractive and pleasant. We pass on the bridges, under the bridges and we do not stop enjoying this museum city. Enjoying Paris outdoors is a challenge and we never get tired of it, we come across monuments, gardens, the different Parisian streets, roads, we also appreciate cars and people until we feel the atmosphere of this impressive city. I take clients close to the monuments and they can explore them in detail. We will stop in front of the monuments, the most important and the others we will see from our bike. I would also stop where the customer asks me to stop if they wish.
